‘The Art Of McCartney’ Tribute Album To Be Released November 18 Featuring Various Artists

Half a century ago, Paul McCartney established himself as one of the most influential songwriters ever. Now the former Beatle is getting his due in a big way, with the compilation The Art of McCartney featuring covers of songs by McCartney during his tenures in the Beatles and Wings and as a solo artist.

The roster is a veritable who’s who of fellow influential singer-songwriters: Bob Dylan (“Things We Said Today”), B.B. King (“On the Way”), Smokey Robinson (“So Bad”), Barry Gibb (“When I’m 64”), Billy Joel (“Maybe I’m Amazed,” “Live and Let Die”), Willie Nelson (“Yesterday”), among many others, all put their unique spin on McCartney songs. The full compilation is set to come out on November 18th.
